    News Anchor Mistakes Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne:

    Veteran KTLA entertainment reporter Sam Rubin isn't well known in Los Angeles for being particularly good at his job. But mistaking Samuel L. Jackson for Laurence Fishburne during an interview this morning is a new low, even for Rubin.

    While interviewing Jackson this morning about his new movie RoboCop, Rubin also asked him about his new Super Bowl commercial. Too bad the Kia commercial stars Fishburne and not Jackson.

    A clearly displeased Jackson then laid into Rubin:

      Maybe he suffers from what I have, face blindness. My case isn't terrible, after I spend enough time with the person and see them more than a few times I do recognize them. But, if a long time passes without my seeing them I will find that I don't recognize people that I have known very well for a long time.

      Sometimes it makes life a real pain. I perform weddings and can literally unite a couple one day and not recognize them the next day. People think I'm rude.

      And daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County Down by the Green River where Paradise lay. Well, I'm sorry my son, but you're too late in asking Mister Peabody's coal train has hauled it away. John Prine
